Try Outs for the Best Spot on the Beach

More than 50 rookie and first-year lifeguard hopefuls lineup under near perfect conditions for the city’s annual 2012 summer tryouts last Saturday, which included the first cut 1,000-yard swim in under 20 minutes. Those who succeed went on to two more run and swim competitions.


Newport Beach’s Ally McCormick reaches for the No. 1 marker from lifeguard Chief Kevin Snow, first place finisher in the 1,000-yard swim. At the conclusion of the three events, 43 men and women were accepted into the rookie and first-year guard training programs, both beginning on March 24.
